Dr. Daniel Kobialka, former Principal Second Violinist of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, will be presenting a masterclass at Antonio Strad Violin on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity to receive free advice by an accomplished and professional violinist with years of experience! Dr. Kobialka began his musical career at the age of 15 when he made his concerto debut at Carnegie Hall, and in the same year appeared as a soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Four years later, he made his critically acclaimed recital debut at Carnegie Hall. He has commissioned over 30 works from such composers as Pulitzer Prize winners Charles Wuorinen, William Bolcom, Henry Brant and Wayne Peterson. Currently, Dr. Kobialka is a violin teacher for our own Strad Studio.
